...when you have not one...but TWO 3lb CO2 tanks that you want to run ALL DAY at a big scenario event and NOT have to stop for air...hrm...

Well, it starts with a pouch...but what pouch will hold 2 3lb CO2 tanks? I mean they are big (like an 88/3000) and there's two...

Well, I got me some of this:

Then turned it into this:

So I could do this:

So now I need 1" OD webbing so I can make MOLLE straps to make it fit my vest. If anyone has about 15' laying around, gimme a holler....

Whutchya think? :D

Now you need a modified remote with two asa's. Open up one tank at a time till you run out. Do they both have on/off valve?

Nope grasshopper...:D
Each of the 2 tanks get linked together with UFAs (universal Fill adapters - that part on the remote line that goes on the tanks) by a S/S hose and a "T" in the middle. Then the remote goes into that "T" fitting and then to my A5.

Yes, I will perate one tank at a time.

Yes they do...that's the black knob you see on the valve bodies...

well, it's the equiv to 40oz of CO2...so about $10 for you.

Here's the set up I'm planning....

I sure as hell dont want to. Its funny how their called "20lbs" & prolly way closer to 50lbs.

welllll.....it HOLDS 20lbs of CO2 but the tank itself has its own weight. Add that to the 20 lbs and it's probably close.

Just plumbed the tanks.
One Tippmnn 98C asa with a 90* fitting and hose. That hose goes into one port of a generic asa that has a fitting port on each side.

Into the other port went my stock A5 90* fitting, it's mated hose and ASA adapter. This is a neat set up because Timppmann makes the fitting, hose and asa (ASA tombstone fitting) a unified set of parts. The 90* female side is not 1/8" NPT threaded but the male side is. That means this fitting is only useul if used in conjunction with the Tippmann s/s line. Waste not, want not...lol.

The Tippmann Tombstone ASA adapter then will screw into the UFA on my remote line, which in turn goes into the marker.

The braided S/S line that goes to the ASA aapter makes it that it should take more abuse than any other type of line. It will go under my arm (or over my shoulder) and give me plenty of maneuvering room to shoot.

Now all I have to do is get them both filled and try out the set up.
